It's Fall Festival Time!

Hi and Happy Fall!

It's finally here..........cooler temps and soft breezes and an occasional rain!

With fall comes the fall festivals and shows! Such fun! Janet, my DH, and I went to one today! It's an annual event and we manage to find such interesting treasures there every time! It's a bit of a drive for us, but well worth it. Our excitement grew as we parked on the side of the farm lane and walked in to the craft booths. Some are lined on the side of the gravel drive, some are in an old building and some are in a barn! There's pumpkins and gourds for sale also, the ones that came home with me are above!

Here are my goodies, things I "Had to Have", treasures that "I Couldn't Go Home Without"!

As you can see, I purchased quite a variety of things! I adore little pincushions so the little kitty had to come home with me, and the crow and pumpkin ones on the ceramic insulators too! Another thing I like are old wooden bowls and this one is a great size. Inside it are little handpainted gourds! They will be adorable on my Halloween tree! The little ceramic piece by the kitty pincushion in front is a bell..... when I picked it up I said, "Oh, it's a bell!" And my witty DH said, "Isabelle!" So we named her Isabelle on the spot and of course, I HAD to buy her then!


  1. Perfect pumpkin...too funny "Isabelle"! Glad you had a fun day.

  2. Oh Sharyn.... You make me truly believe that fall is finally here. I have been refusing to believe it, but here it is !! I love all your finds... It sounds like you had a fun day. I am on my way back home from Shepherd's Bush retreat and I saw Donna Urmston there. Do you remember Donna from the Med Cruise? She lives in Raleigh, NC. It was great to see her there !!
